Yeah, I remember that. This was the night Hope brought out Ann Jillian for The Other One. Bob Hope at the Keiser? If that's true someone needs to confirm. That would be priceless.

I believe you are right about Bob Hope being at those benefit shows. Completely forgot about it really but all this talk has jogged a memory of Shakedown street gossip at the Earthquake Benefit Dead Shows shortly after that was basically like people going, wow cool lineup but Bob Hope huh very weird.
